 In today's episode, we have two stories from writer, Chris Paul: “A Picture Painted Quickly” and “A Statue on the Corner”. Chris has been living in Vietnam for the past year, and his stories of an inexplicable violence and of a guilty compassion paint a portrait of a sometimes chaotic, but always rich and interesting country.

 

Conversation Topics: writing, poetry, the hobbit, ho chi minh city, history, vietnam war, manchester, england, reading, childhood, teaching, language, english, future aspirations. 

 

Read today's stories and Chris' other work on his blog.
